Default Weird issue with bathroom plumbing

So I replaced the shitty Price Pfister hot water valve in the bathtub, and I turn on the water. It works fine. But now both vanity valves do nothing. Nada. Zero. Zilcharooni. Any explanation for this before I start tearing shit apart and cussing up a cyclone?

Sounds like you have some valves closed. Track it back to the supply lines.

The vanity faucet is a Delta. I had to bleed the air out of the supply lines and then the valves opened up. Is this common with Delta faucets? I've never had to do this before.

The Delta faucet is a lawyer - full of hot air

I don't know what just came over me there.



In all seriousness, I doubt it's the faucet. The cartridge in just a holey ball. There's nothing else to it. Probably just the way the pipes were run.

Bleed the supply lines??? I thought lawyers were only taught how to bleed clients & turnips, and it was plumbers who bleed pipes & clients. You must be one of thosw plumber wannabees.
